Peachtree Corners tightens right-of-way maintenance

The Peachtree Corners city council amended the city’s property maintenance code Dec. 15 to require the maintenance of right-of-way immediately in front of private property.

The changes include adding: “All premises yards and exterior property shall be maintained free from debris, litter, and rubbish, as well as grass and weeds in excess of 12 inches in height.”

The revision also defines the term “exterior property” as all areas on the property to the edge of street pavement.

The maintenance code changes are effectively immediately.
